Artist Kid Rock hints he will run for U.S. Senate in 2018
DETROIT — Recording star Kid Rock
(pictured), an outspoken supporter of Republican President Donald Trump, hinted in website and social media messages on Wednesday that he intends to run for the U.S. Senate in 2018, promising a “major announcement” to come soon.
The 46yearold Michigan native drew attention on Twitter and his Facebook page to a “Kid Rock ’18 for U.S. Senate” website. It features a photo of the goateed singersongwriter wearing a leather jacket, dark glasses and white fedora, seated in a plush, starspangled chair beside a stuffed deer above the tagline: “Are you scared?”
The site also displays images of a Tshirt, baseball cap and bumper sticker emblazoned with the campaign logo, “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate” and a box of alternating slogans, including, “In Rock We Trust”, “Party to the People” and “You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me”.
“I have a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real ... The answer is an absolute YES,” he said on his verified Twitter account. “Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future.”
Reached by email, the musician’s spokesperson Kirt Webster referred only to Rock’s Facebook page, which bore the same message.
